Just an idea of if you do take top spot in any game, fastest time, highest scores etc. Then it needs to have Proof

So many time I have seen people upload times/scores that are in 2nd or 3rd spot with proof using a phone picture  and then same person claims a time/score that goes top but provides no proof at all.

What is stopping me going on every single game and putting up a new time/high score and beating it my 1second or by 1 point.

There was a time when you actually had to do this. But as I remember this rule was removed about three years ago. I also cannot remember the reasons for that.

Now I remember... Too little people were posting records at the time and that rule change should make the website more attractive - especially for newcomers. But now, several years later, I don't think it has solved the issue. So why not undo that step?

You can always request a proof of a score that you deem suspicious or not possible. You just have to click the grey square next to their record and provide a reason. A Proof Admin will then review it and either accept it or deny it based on the reason and the record in question.

People have tried to cheat before and we have caught many who have tried. It's not impossible to get away with cheating here, but sooner or later, you will be caught. Don't try it.  
Even on sites where posting a record has more strict rules, including video only, have had cheaters in plain sight for years, and only have recently been caught. It isn't the system that stops a cheater, it is the community that does. We have to always keep our eyes open and detect any suspicious posts.

We did, at one point in time, have the 1st place prove system in place, but it seemed to have discouraged people to post scores for some reason. I guess people didn't like that they were forced to prove a score. The freedom of choosing what scores to prove is possibly why so many people liked the site in the past. It is one of the biggest reasons I like this site.

This site is pretty old. It has been through updates and changes that have affected the proofs of some (We used to have proof links to Youtube or DailyMotion, which those proofs are lost now). So some were probably proved before but now aren't.

If you have any further doubts, please ask. We are here to help.

Nice answer DEM!   

We just have to wait the new version of VGR. He will be not that old if they refresh it.
